Lake Bohinj

Slovenia’s extraordinary Lake Bohinj is truly a hidden gem. Located at the foot of the Julian Alps, which seem to rise out of the lake itself, Lake Bohinj is 4.35 km long and 1 km wide. The crisp and pristine waters are surrounded by spectacular views and shaded forests. For any swimmers looking for a quiet and serene retreat, away from thick tourist throngs, Bohinj is an ideal destination.

Lake Bled

Lake Bled is known throughout the world for its magical beauty and healing atmosphere. Plunge into Bled’s refreshing waters for a long idyllic swim before relaxing in the grass and shade by the lake or taking a stroll through the charming town. Take a boat to an island situated in the center of the lake, and visit Bled’s ancient church, still decorated with Gothic frescos. Sample Bled’s traditional dessert, Kremšnita, a delicious vanilla and custard cream cake. Whether you are a season swimmer or training for your first competition, Bled is a wonderful swimming location.

Adriatic sea

The Adriatic Sea, a large inlet of the Mediterranean, has been admired by sea-lovers through the Roman, Byzantine, and Venetian eras, an admiration that continues to this day. The 20 km stretch of Slovenian coast, which touches the shining and calm Adriatic waters, is speckled by historical sites, breathtaking vistas, and vibrant culture. Whether you stay in Portorož, Piran, Koper, or Izola, you are sure to return from your trip with pleasant memories.

Small but beautiful Slovenian Adriatic coast and Slovenian Istria

Although the Slovenian coastline is short, it is remarkable. The rolling hills along the Adriatic seem designed for biking, offering sparkling views of the sea at their crests, and lively coastal villages and cities at their feet. Visit Piran, Portoroz, Koper and Izola, four of Slovenia’s most charming seaside cities. Immerse yourself in the ancient history of a modern Slovenia, visiting architectural sites such as the Holy Trinity Church in Hrastovlje, where you can view a fresco from the late Gothic period. Whether a casual cyclist or a seasoned professional, the Slovenian coastal region is not to be missed.

Vinyard hills and Karst in the South-western Slovenia

A broad plateau, which is home to Slovenia’s famous Karst region, spreads inland from the Bay of Trieste, and is perfect for cycling and cave exploration. Due to help from the European Union’s PHARE program, the Karst region is now able to boast 360 km of cycling trails, which may be combined in order to create rides of varying lengths and difficulty. While demanding cycling routes do exist in this region, the undulating landscape lends itself to less strenuous rides, and is perfect for those cyclists seeking serene country roads and tracks. As you coast along, stop to explore the enchanting karst-formed Postojna and Skocjan Caves, visit the Lipica horses, and enjoy the Karst dry-cured ham – prosciutto.

Alpine valleys and passes in Julian Alps

Slovenia’s northern borders with Italy and Austria are framed by the Julian Alps, offering bikers challenging and inspirational routes, both on and off road. Tackle the monumental alpine peaks before racing back down the mountains and plunging into the crystalline Bohinj and Bled Lakes. Explore historical sites, such as the Church of St. Petrus and Kamen Castle. Introduce your taste buds to delicious Slovenian borovnica blueberry schnapps and the aromatic wines of the Goriska Brda vineyards. Delight in the pristine nature of Triglav National Park. Satisfy your taste for adrenaline white water rafting, kayaking, canyoning, tubing, and hydrospeeding down the pristine Soca River. Use the power of your legs and the turn of your bike’s wheels to introduce yourself to culture, history, and adventure in the breathtaking alpine valleys and passes of the Julian Alps in Slovenia.

Pristine Slovenian forests

For those bikers seeking the shade and tranquility of a forest trail, Slovenia has a lot to offer. Ranking third in the European Union for relative forest cover, 64% of Slovenia’s landscape is forest. A 50 km long branch of the Central Alps, covered by stunning woodlands, and called Pohorje, offers excellent routes for any bikers searching for a backwoods ride. The 700 m climb up Pohorje may be cycled by any bikers pursuing a real challenge. For those looking for a more casual ride, a gondola makes the ascent less difficult. The most eastern point of this beautiful region is marked by Slovenia’s second largest city, Maribor, where cyclists can sample Slovenian cuisine and culture.

Ljubljana

Ljubljana recently named as No.2 in the “Best in Europe” list by Lonely Planet. ‘One of Europe’s greenest and most liveable cities, with a vibrant cultural, café and nightlife scene that gives it the feel of a perpetual street party’.
